With the 135th overall pick the Philadelphia Eagles select Clemson DE Ricky Sapp

via www.draftseason.com

With the 3rd pick in the 5th round Philadelphia Eagles have selected Ricky Sapp, DE Clemson. Sapp was one of the 30 players the Eagles invited to Philly for a pre draft visit.

Many people feel Sapp projects as a SAM in the NFL. NFL.com quick take

Sapp is an undersized, athletic defensive end who has growth potential. He is a competitive player but tends to be more of a finesse defender against the run. He shows good initial quickness off the line of scrimmage as an edge rusher with the ability to close well to the quarterback. Sapp is a solid reacter who has enough agility and quickness to stand up as an outside 'backer in a 3-4 defensive scheme. His size, versatility and athleticism should bode well as a special-teams contributor, as well as providing depth to a defense at the next level.
